Tim Walker

I came across these this yesterday morning… photos by Tim Walker.  [More about him here.]

I found Tim Walker via Fifi Lapin.  He has a new book coming out… you'll know why Fifi liked the book cover if you follow this link.

Lately I’ve been saving images of camel back sofas… I think it was my sister’s (below) that inspired me.

Paige

(the pigtail blondie is not my sister, but rather my niece)

What I love about it:

  • it’s classic
  • it’s comfortable
  • clean lines: usually a single seat cushion and tight back

Here’s what has been accumulating in my file labeled “camel back sofas”…

{Baker’s Juliette Tight Back Sofa}

Francine_sf_top

{MG+BW’s Francine… which is not what I was looking for.  I was looking for Sally Wheat’s sofas… which were there one day, gone the next.  Not very “camel back” but inspired (arched back)… so come one… let’s roll with it.}

My brother-in-law sent these to me via email with the subject of the email as "happy"… yes Bayn, the pictures you sent make me very happy.
